[resolved] How often to fetch items? (3 posts)

    Is there a way to set how often does HungryFeed has to look for new items?

    I am using this shortcode:
    [hungryfeed url="http://www.mysite.com/myfeed.xml" item_fields="title,date,description" feed_fields="" date_format="d.m. Y" max_items="0" page_size="3"]

    Is there a way I can say it should read the feed every hour / 3hours etc.? Some feeds I need to check more often than others, so this would be a big help. Thanks.

    There isn't a background process - HungryFEED fetches the feed on-demand when somebody visits the page. However it will cache the RSS, so it doesn't re-fetch for every single visitor. In the settings you can control how long the cache will last until it expires. The default is 3 hours.

    OK, thanks a lot. This is what I needed to know :)
